Early in Mati Diop’s beguiling and visually lyrical Atlantics, two young lovers, Ada and Souleiman are separated, as he leaves Dakar in hope of a better life across the sea in Europe. But the love story is only the prelude to a deeper, stranger story that merges contemporary issues of the refugee crisis and global inequality with haunting themes of magic, spiritual possession and the supernatural.
